The Luxury Travel Book - Luxury apartment & villa accommodation to rent in beautiful destinations
Venice, Italy · Apartment - Castello · 2 Bedrooms · 4 - 6 people
This impressive rental apartment, recently renovated to a very high standard, is in a great Venice location, away from the hustle and bustle, yet within an easy walk of St Mark’s Square. Close by is the Scuola di San Giorgio degli Schiavoni, with its wonderful Carpaccio paintings, the Dominican Basilica di Santi Giovanni e Paolo (one of the largest churches in Venice and burial place of no fewer than 25 Venetian Doges), and Campo Santa Maria Formosa. Even closer is the Church of San Lorenzo (now closed to the public, but the supposed resting place of famous Venetian explorer Marco Polo (1255-1324) before his body was lost during its rebuilding) and the Museo di Dipinti Sacri Byzanti (Museum of Icons) just along the canal. Also within easy reach is the local Punto supermarket for easy self-catering and to the vaporetto (water bus) stop at San Zaccaria on the Riva Degli Schiavoni waterfront.
The third floor apartment is an extremely comfortable and convenient base for your stay in Venice and also benefits from a furnished ‘altana’ terrace, accessed via a short staircase from the living area. From here guests can enjoy breathtaking views vistas over Venice, taking in the churches of San Francesco Della Vigna and San Giorgio Maggiore in the distance and the onion domes and bell-tower of St. Mark’s soaring above the terracotta rooftops. Fans of Donna Leon’s crime books, might also be interested in knowing that the ‘Questura’ office of the fictional police Commissario Guido Brunetti, is just moments away by foot, on the ‘Rio di San Lorenzo’ canal.
The apartment is accessed via an entrance area (with a bathroom with shower and wash hand basin) and a staircase leading up to a large main living space, full of character, thanks to the preservation of its magnificently rustic roof and wall timbers, wooden flooring, attractive ‘sunken’ seating area and eclectic choice of furnishings. This main room leads via an arched glazed doorway surrounded by pretty conservatory-style trompe de l’oeil decoration, to a bright and fully-equipped west-facing kitchen enjoying fabulous views from its two rear windows. There are two bedrooms, one on either side of the apartment - a light and airy double with beamed ceilings, and a similarly beamed twin bedroom, plus two stylish bathrooms - one with a small bath, and another with w.c. and wash hand basin. Amenities include air-conditioning, a washing machine, hairdryer, cable TV and Wi-Fi internet.
